AUGUSTA, GA. (AP) - Guan Tianlang played a practice round at Augusta National with Ben Crenshaw on Monday. He has a round set up for Tuesday with Tom Watson, and he wants to play the Par 3 Tournament with Nick Faldo.

Can’t he play with someone his own age? Not at this Masters.

Guan is a 14-year-old from China, the youngest to ever play in the Masters and the youngest player at any major in 148 years. He qualified by winning the Asia Pacific Amateur last fall, and now gets a crack at the best in the game.

The teenager has been in Augusta the last few weeks and has played the course about six times. Guan wants to enjoy himself this week and hit good shots, even though plenty of people will be watching.
